  7. Ageing population a business opportunity

    Ageing population a business opportunity

    Report/ 2011/ Researches show that the biggest frustrations for some older people are feeling overlooked by frontline staff, being bewildered by new technology, and the physical barriers put in place by businesses. This three-year study focuses on the interaction between older people and business. For instance, why do deli sections in supermarkets put their 'ring for attention' bells on the top of the cabinets, where people in wheelchairs can't reach them? are some building doors so heavy that people with walking frames struggle to get through them, and why are the seats in many waiting rooms so low when many older people find them embarrassingly difficult or impossible to get out of?"
